We are preparing our 2017 agenda which will feature comprehensive tracks for Security and Risk Management. 

2016 Tracks

A. CISO & CRO Program: CISO as Business Leader
The acceleration toward “the digital business” has presented CISOs with new challenges. CISOs must understand the goals of the business, quickly identify and assess the associated risks, and communicate the relevant risks to the business in business terms. The traditional approach where security told the business to wait while they figured out how to make it safe is no longer a viable solution. As businesses move toward new and different technologies and platforms, CISOs need to realize the old school approach of controlling everything just won’t work any longer. Join us for the CISO program and become a recognized business leader, superstar communication and facilitator, and problem solver.
B. Security Program: Building trust and resilience with more agile security
The security program focuses on practical methods and longer-term strategies to build a more trusted and resilient environment for digital business and to support a more agile than ever IT organization. A dedicated series of sessions will cover the emerging trends and state of the art practices and technologies for cloud, mobile, data, application endpoint and network security. As new business practices change the threat landscape, security programs must evolve, without neglecting legacy infrastructure which still sustain the organization. Sessions will include methodologies to support both the new use cases and to improve the efficiency of more mature technologies and processes as organizations prepare to securely cross the digital business chasm.
C. Cloud Security: Enabling a safer CloudCloud computing is changing the way enterprises use IT. Security requirements and security monitoring, in particular, often lag behind. Approaches for security monitoring of cloud have important similarities and differences from that of traditional IT resources. Cloud-specific threats do exist, but cloud users report that they spend more time dealing with traditional threats that affect their cloud environment. This program will advise CISOs and security teams on how to adapt to evolving challenges of secure enterprise use and connectivity with those areas, providing best practices for risk assessment and management, process changes and technology evaluation.


Security Architecture:  Enabling execution with real-world technical and tactical insights.
The demands on information security and IT risk practitioners are ever increasing. Not only does the attack and threat landscape change constantly, but organization’s digital business objectives are accelerating the adoption of current and emerging technology. While still called upon to provide solid architectures and technical solutions, the demand for close partnerships that address business objectives while addressing risk has become a core competency for IT practitioners. The Technical Insights track focuses on the technical and tactical insights that enable risk-aware, business outcome focused architectures and solutions.

Leadership & Professional Development
A leading security management and competent risk increases their knowledge not only in technical matters but also in business management and dynamic techniques. This component provides insights from a full range of skills and knowledge necessary to increase their capabilities as security and risk manager.

Virtual Security and Mobility​
Mobile devices present a series of new security issues, with the BYOD phenomenon represents the greatest challenge. IT organizations must adapt to this rapidly changing environment and implement new policies and new technologies to reduce the risks of mobile desktop. This strand will help you navigate the mobile environment in a period of three years.
